The prototype of the Russian “Itanium Killer” – by the end of the year, or a look at E2K “from there”
An interesting article was found on the pages of the ExtremeTech website, which is part of the ZD Network media corporation. Yesterday there were published reflections on the viability of the Russian Elbrus E2K processor, which is being developed within the walls of Elbrus MCST (Moscow Center of Sparc Technology, that is, the Moscow center of Sparc technologies).
According to the project manager Boris Babayan, the head of MCST CJSC, the E2K project is currently alive and developing. What’s more, the company hopes to get a prototype processor by the end of 2021. “At the end of year will be first prototype silicon” – these are the lines written in Babayan’s letter to ExtremeTech. “We don’t want many noise before it.”That is, a prototype in silicon will be obtained before the end of the year, however, there is no need to make noise about it ahead of time.
Indeed, it is better, as they say, to count chickens in autumn. However, we are all interested in at least some current information about the progress of the project.
Refreshing the details. According to the internal Elbrus MCST roadmap, the Elbrus processor will only have a clock speed of 400 MHz using the 0.18 micron process technology, however, its successor, E2K, will be able to reach 1.2 GHz by 2021 (if everything goes according to plans). According to the company, using the 0.10 micron process technology, the E2K will be able to achieve clock speeds of the order of 3 GHz and show performance in the SPECint95 and SPECfp95 benchmarks, respectively. Building on the original Sparc (Sun Microsystems) processor architecture, Elbrus MCST has developed its own instruction set with binary compilation technology similar to the code-morphing technology used by Transmeta in its Crusoe chips. Despite the seemingly rather low clock frequencies by today’s standards, Elbrus will initially support the hyper-parallel architecture, which will certainly allow not to chase high frequencies and will give low power consumption. According to Babayan, the processor will perform up to 24 operations per cycle.
Alas, as always, it comes down to funding. According to Babayan, quoted by the Kommersant newspaper, even if the state allocates $ 100 million. to develop a new architecture, you still need to find a billion dollars somewhere else to bring the project to implementation.
Babayan sees the only way to overcome the financial problem through cooperation with Western companies. There are now five Western companies among potential partners of the Elbrus project: Avant!, Cisco Systems, Infineon Technologies, Sun Microsystems and Transmeta Corp. At the same time, Sun and Transmeta officials express their point of view that the creation of the Elbrus processor is a fairly real and viable project, the whole problem rests only on money. “I’m confident in these guys, we know each other from working together at Sun,” said Dave Ditzel, Vice President and CTO of Transmeta. “I consider many of them my friends…”. Sun Microsystems representatives confirmed that the Elbrus project is being developed in cooperation with Sun, in particular, special software is being jointly developed (which is not specified).
The main problem the project is currently facing is the lack of a ready-made processor. Until there is a chip in silicon, it is problematic to talk about the allocation of finance. This gives the estimates of American analysts a fair amount of skepticism at the mention of the Elbrus project.
“Until they have something to show, I don’t think the story will get any further,” said analyst Peter Glaskowsky, editor-in-chief of The Microprocessor Report, published by Cahners MicroDesign Resources. Well-known analyst Dean McCarron, an analyst at Mercury Research, has a more optimistic view of this issue: despite the fact that he considers funding a key factor for success, in his opinion, such options are not excluded when an almost unknown company succeeds. “There have been stories of small development teams that succeed,” he said. “Such as [processor designers] Athlon.”
